Love Is Blind season two contestant Abhishek "Shake" Chatterjee has publicly apologized to ex-fiancée Deepti Vempati less than a week after he defended his actions in a dramatic reunion special on Netflix.

But fans of the show aren't buying the turnaround from Chatterjee, whom Vempati refused to marry in the finale of the Netflix series.

On March 8, International Women's Day, Chatterjee took to Instagram to apologize for repeatedly criticizing Vempati's looks behind her back on the show.

"I wanted to take this opportunity to really just say sorry to a woman that I know I hurt, and Deepti, I am truly sorry for some of the things that I said," he said in his Instagram video.

The 33-year-old claims that he reached out to her privately to apologize, but he also wanted to share his comments publicly so her "family and friends" could see it, too.

People in the comments didn't really buy it though.

"Wait… you're sorry when you've been nonstop posting justifications for your behavior? Make it make sense," one user commented on the post.

"Its only because everyone is coming for you…." commented another.

"Damage control at its best 😂," another user said.

Some said the apology was past due, while also hinting at Deepti's unconfirmed romance with Kyle Abrams, another contestant on the show.

"Deepti and Kyle are drinking margaritas together right now.... too little, too late."

During the blind date portion of the show, Shake repeatedly asked women about their weight. Later, after proposing to Deepti and meeting her in person, he told other contestants that she felt like his "aunt."

"I'm not physically attracted to her," he said.

Since the premiere of the show, Chatterjee's social media accounts have been filled with people recommending that he go to therapy, while others have just told him straight up to get over himself.

Last week, Chatterjee doubled down on speaking his own "truth" and said in a video that he would not apologize.

Vempati had a few tense exchanges with Chatterjee in the reunion show, saying that he doesn't know how to speak to people, "especially women."

Several other cast members also went after Chatterjee at the reunion, including Natalie Lee, who said that viewers even saw a "watered-down version" of what he said about Vempati.
